We travel a lot and are fairly picky, so it means something when we give an excellent rating for a hotel. Building outside was pretty and landscaping was well tended. We had 4 adults on this trip because we were visiting family in San Diego for Christmas. The family suite at this hotel was perfect with 2 queen beds in large bedroom and sofa bed in living room/dining/kitchen area. Kitchen had full size frig and oven/range & microwave and fully stocked cabinets with nice dishes/pans, etc. We checked other hotels in the area and no others had this ample family suite option. The complimentary breakfast buffet was not gourmet, but quite nice. Waffle maker, pancake maker, tasty oatmeal in a crock pot - not just single do it your self packets. Bagels, croissants, muffins, toast, cereal choices, frig stocked with cooked hard boiled eggs/yogurt. Pleasant kitchen staff that kept things stocked and clean. Friendly & helpful front desk staff and housekeeping. Wish we had time to get into the outdoor pool, because it looked nice - and I am picky about pools!
Location was handy to several exits off Hwy.8, yet hotel was far enough away to be quiet with no traffic noise at all. Ralphs grocery only a few blocks away. The El Cajon Blvd is not a fancy street, but in a safe feeling area. We chose this hotel location because the family we were visiting were near by, but it is near San Diego State University campus and so this location appeals to family of students there. It only takes minutes to take Hwy #8 to Hwy #5 to get to Balboa Park, the San Diego Harbor, airport, etc. less
